While at work, most front-line workers in hazardous industrial environments can’t enjoy the safety and communication benefits that modern smartphones and tablets offer. Flammability and explosion concerns prevent use of consumer grade smart devices, so when a worker starts a shift, they basically go dark, losing access to communications. As the first and only workforce optimization and telecommunication device of its kind designed for use in hazardous environments, walt™ enables a new era where EVERYONE on a worksite can communicate and have their location known—a must for keeping employees safe and operations secure.
